Windsurfing - Waves

General Information

Sandy beach break facing East. Waves are usualy 3-5ft. Home to a pod of Hector's Dolphins, and yellow eyed penguins. Worth the drive just for the 'touristy' stuff.

Windsurfing info:

Best rigging/launching is at the west end of the bay by the camping ground. Nice easy place to sail in East to South directions. South is more gusty but also more side shore. The point provides a large flat area on the inside and a point break for the crazys further out. The shore break is biggest half way down the beach and is best at low-mid tide (outgoing).

Watch for: Dolphins, rips, rocks, and sharks?
